    1. This effortlessly sweet Peter Pan collared blouse.


    Made from lightweight chiffon, this pretty little thing has the sweetest of details — a Peter Pan collar, removable black ribbon, pleated detail and buttoned cuffs. Rock with tailored trousers during work hours and your favourite jeans after 5pm.

    Buy from Amazon Australia from $24.32.

    2. This angelic, satin, longline number of a shirt.


    Where to start? The mandarin collar, asymmetrical button front, soft ruffles and exaggerated cuffs?? I've died and gone to sartorial heaven.

    Buy from Amazon Australia from $147.19.

    3. This classic tuxedo shirt, no longer just for cashed up men.


    I am so thankful tuxedo shirts have made the move over to women's fashion. Wear buttoned to the collar for a fancy upgrade to your weekly work attire — or unbuttoned and off-the-shoulder for a legitimate ~lewk~.

    Buy from Amazon Australia from $30.87.

    4. This Marie Antoinette throwback of a ruffled collar blouse.


    Wear it as the French girls do — lacy black bra through the semi-sheer fabric (workplace dress code permitting!).

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $33.23.

    5. This corset-inspired shirt, perfect from the boardroom to the bar.


    Made from pure cotton, this shirt owes its silhouette to fitted waist panelling and batwing sleeves. Play up the peplum shape with the skinniest of jeans — or lean in to the fun sleeves by pairing with MC Hammer-pants.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $170.

    6. This most flattering of vintage white wrap blouses.


    This linen-blend wrap shirt is a minimalist's dream. No embellishments, it cinches at the waist and ties at the back. Wear with well-loved, distressed denim to exaggerate its simplicity.

    Buy from Amazon Australia from $51.69.

    7. This really oversized shirt.


    Pure cotton construction, mandarin collar, really relaxed fit — this shirt is the perfect solution for what to wear when you have no idea what to throw on.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $67.99.

    8. This '70s revival, balloon-sleeved crop top.


    Made from a lightweight, semi-sheer fabric, this top gathers at the cropped hem and the end of its balloon sleeves. Versatile AF, wear with high-waisted anything.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $160.

    9. This classic mandarin collared shirt with a difference.


    A pure cotton shirt with pared back mandarin collar and schmancy bell sleeves — is there anything more beautiful? I think not. Pencil skirt, pants, denim — it all goes.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $149.

    10. This oh-so-delicate peasant top.


    This lightweight, cotton top is so damn dainty — peek-a-boo trim, tonal embroidery detail, and elasticised dropped waist and cuffs. Up the farm girl aesthetic with a pleated, mid-length skirt.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $79.95.

    11. This embroidered, off-shoulder crop top that wouldn't look out of place on Buttercup from The Princess Bride.

    Amazon / Via

    This off-shoulder cotton crop top is laden with delicate embroidery, a cinched waist and fluted sleeves. Wear on the first day of summer, rinse and repeat, all season long.

    Buy from Amazon Australia for $79.95.

    12. And finally, this sweetheart-neckline blouse that is the definition of ladylike.
